UNM, Navajo Nation announce student housing partnership

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The University of New Mexico and the Navajo Nation are joining forces for a new housing initiative.

They announced the partnership Friday to provide housing for 118 Navajo students. The goal is to make sure the students get the resources they need to succeed in the future.

“It’s a place where our students can relax, study, collaborate, and talk about inventing things, and so it’s really a great day for the Navajo Nation, for our Navajo children, our students,” Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye said.

The new housing will be on the fifth and sixth floors of the Lobo Rainforest.

The agreement between UNM and the Navajo Nation will last through July 2021.
